The Fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different beliefs and faiths is explicitly taught at PGHS as an integral part of our academic curriculum. The ability to explore British Values through lively and articulate debate extends to all year groups and each subject area contributes to the development of students’ understanding and application of these values. Furthermore, provision for learning Fundamental British Values in greater depth is supported by our planned co-curriculum. Assemblies, form time and drop-down learning sessions allow students to delve deeper into the significance of Fundamental British Values, for example this year KS3 students have learnt about the importance of democracy and the rule of law by launching their own campaign to make Magna Carta Day (15th June) a new English public holiday. As well as publishing a petition on the UK government website to garner support for the campaign, each student has actively participated in the initiative by writing a letter to an English Member of Parliament requesting their support in future parliamentary debates. Over 70 MPs have written personal responses to students, including the Home Secretary and the Leader of the Opposition.
